    LES has internship positions open throughout the year but they do try to line up opening with UNL Career Fairs which will be occurring Tuesday, September 24 and Wednesday, September 25 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena from 1-5 pm. So this would be the prime time to check out their website if you have an information technology related degrees, communications or marketing, engineering major or GIS course work/experience. LES does run traditional internships over the summer too, with the hope of having students stay with them throughout the next semester to ensure the best experience. An internship with LES will expose you to real world experiences and responsibilities as well as lead to the potential of being brought on full time after graduation.
    Wondering about careers and other opportunities LES has to offer? Some things to take into consideration are that they have great benefits, casual work attire, flexible work scheduling (especially for students), great job security and potential for movement throughout the company.
    If you have any other questions or feel like Lincoln Electrical System could be the place for you, check out their website, set up a job shadow or visit with them at the upcoming career fair!
